Entrance and Difference

Jesse Nissim

A family is not in charge
of a house The coffee is strong
the table is bluegreen glass
Green putty of the dimensional
Every maze has its hallway look-alike
Things gather under their empty shoes
when they're out It might be nice
to look through a fence and see another
fence looking through another one
For example my hall has a little door
It opens on the plumbing or I walked
all day in mechanical shoes
